The CEO of NSW GHRRA has announced that “evidence at the Inquiry revealed that Shane Stiff and Charles Hughes became involved in a physical and verbal altercation during the race meeting in a public area”.
“After consideration of all evidence, both Shane Stiff and Charles Hughes were charged and
pleaded Guilty to a breach of Rule 86(o).”
After careful consideration of penalty, Stewards imposed the following:

Shane Stiff has since appealed the Stewards’ decision and a Stay of Proceedings has been
